Why Refer?

By referring to Dr. McBryar, you can ensure that your students or patients meet all of the visual needs required to achieve success in the classroom and in daily activity. People of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from Dr. McBryar’s specialized services as she provides advanced functional vision care, extending far beyond visual acuity, in order to improve the patient’s quality of life.

Referral Section

In the broad profession of optometry, you usually see doctors who either specialize in vision therapy or in treating low vision, but rarely both combined into a single practice.

Dr. McBryar is referred to by many medical and educational professionals in Chattanooga for functional vision exams, including:

Strabismus
Amblyopia
Convergence insufficiency
Diplopia
Learning disabilities
TBI
Vision loss
Impaired visual field
For example, a person struggling with convergence insufficiency may suffer from headaches or difficulty in classroom performance and may not know that this is due to an aspect of their neurological visual system which is malfunctioning. There is a wealth of clinical research indicating the success of correcting convergence insufficiency with vision therapy.

Testimonials


  • Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

    Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

  • Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

    He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

    It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

    Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!


    Charlotte M.

  • Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

    Thank you!
